About Coq

Luis Garcia Gallo, who published under the name Coq, spent most of his career working for the French press, and mainly the journal Paris-Presse and the weekly Jours de France. Born in Toro, Coq studied arts in Bilbao, and became a political artist in Spain with most notably 'El Generalísimo' in 1937. He headed for France in the late 1940s. He created humorous drawings and comics for French newspapers and magazines, and he had his biggest success in the early 1950s with the pantomime comic 'Mam'zelle Souris'. Until 1964, the strip had a good diffusion through the Intermonde Presse agency, and was published in Paris-Presse, L'Intransigeant, Ici-Paris, France-Soir, and Le Soir. Text (c) Lambiek
